Today, the Year 5 children from Dore settled in a Viking village at the Danelaw Centre. They needed to master a range of basic skills to survive in a time without electricity, sanitation or shops. They learnt that the Vikings were sometimes fearsome warriors, but they were also:
  • Sailors
  • Settlers
  • Farmers
  • Crafts people
  • Traders
  • Raiders
Thanks to the adults slaves who helped out on a fantastic day bringing learning to life.
